Site managers must hold the correct licence

A licensed building company and its nominee must make sure that building work carried out by the company is personally supervised by the company’s nominee or an employee who holds a licence of the relevant class that authorises supervision of the building work. 

The maximum penalty for a company failing to meet this requirement is $117,800. 

If the building site is under the control of an appropriately licensed person, other employees in a supporting supervisory role are not required to be licensed unless they are engaged as contractors.
